Marvel Finally Lifts The Lid On Secret Empire

10 February 2017 10:23 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When Marvel started dropping teasers for their next major crossover event, Secret Empire, not long ago, it quickly became apparent that Steve Rogers would somehow be central to the plot. After all, the current shield he wields was being used in the promo images.

Now, the House of Ideas is ready to pull back the curtain and formally announce the event series set to be written by, not surprisingly, Nick Spencer, who currently pens the ongoing Captain America: Steve Rogers. Not only that, but fan favorite artist Steve McNiven is slated to lend his distinctive pencils to the project. As of now, 9 issues are scheduled to encompass the ambitious story arc.

As many of you are likely aware, Rogers had his history rewritten when Kobik, a living Cosmic Cube, managed to make him an agent of Hydra during the resurrection process. Needless to say, this creative decision caused an uproar among fans, »

Marc Buxton Feb 1, 2017

Lots and lots of Patton Oswalt as the hunt for the Darkhold heats up on this week’s episode of Marvel’s Agents Of Shield

This Agents Of Shield review contains spoilers.

4.12 Hot Potato Soup

New viewers tuning into Marvel’s Agent Of Shield this week might think that they are seeing double because some top notch acting talent was pulling some double and triple duty as the hunt for the Darkhold takes a startling turn.

Hot Potato Soup saw the return of the Agents Koenig this week as Patton Oswalt returns in multiple roles. Meanwhile, Doctor Radcliffe hires a group of some pretty badass inhuman hating Russian mercs to help abduct the Koenigs and find the location of the Darkhold. Coulson gives the Koenigs the Darkhold for safe keeping, but sadly, at the beginning of the episode, Radcliffe’s crew abducts Sam Koenig and the hunt is on. »

John Ostrander: Jack Kirby is Still King!

15 January 2017 5:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I may have told this story before but I’m at an age where you repeat yourself a lot. And it’s germane to this column.

Years ago, when I was still somewhat new to the industry, I was working the First Comics booth at a Chicago Con along with my lovely wife, Kim Yale. A group of pros walked past me that included Julie Schwartz, the legendary DC editor, and Roz and Jack Kirby.

My jaw dropped and I started hyperventilating. Kim gave me a strange look.

“Pssst! Julie!” I whispered. I knew Julie from DC, at least somewhat. Ever affable, Julie came to the table.

“Whatcha want, kid?”

“Introduce me to the King!” Julie gave me a strange look.

“Whattaya talking about? It‘s just Jack. Come over and say hello.”

No no no no no! I can’t! Don’t you understand?! He’s the King! Help a guy out, »

Marvel announces The Defenders from Brian Michael Bendis and David Marquez

11 January 2017 2:30 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel has enlisted Brian Michael Bendis and David Marquez to assemble The Defenders for a brand new comic series this June featuring Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist.

“As opposed to other more global or galactic Super Hero groups, the Defenders are very much focused on the streets, on the neighborhoods, on the community,” says Svp, Executive Editor, Tom Brevoort. “Their battles are no less fiercely fought or consequential, but the arena is a very different one, and the stakes more personal. Brian will be building upon the relationships that he established years ago in New Avengers to create something unique and primary within the Marvel Universe.”

“[The Defenders] is a smorgasbord of everything I truly love about Marvel Comics,” adds Bendis. “And to keep the team of David [Marquez], Justin [Ponsor], and myself together for another creative challenge is so exciting! We’ve been planning this book for well over a »

Avengers: Infinity War - Zoe Saldana Confirms Role And Gives Her Thoughts On The Film's Direction

10 January 2017 7:48 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Sunday night, the Golden Globe Awards were handed out and in attendance was the alluring actress Zoe Saldana, who plays Gamora in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While we have a pretty good idea of who will be in Avengers: Infinity War, it's always newsworthy when an actor confirms a role, as Saldana was interviewed by MTV's Josh Horowitz and asked her thoughts on the Infinity War script.

“I don’t know when they’re going to let me see it [the script], I’m not looking forward to the five hours of green make up, but every time I arrive on set, I’m so happy and lucky to be there.”

That statement is confirmation enough for me, and yesterday IGN was able to squeeze a little more information out of her as she gives her thoughts on working with a different director and the direction of her character in Infinity War. »

Comic Books 101: Comic Books To Keep An Eye Out For In 2017

In 2016 Both Marvel and DC had their own version of companywide “reboots” to help improve sales and streamline their stories. For Marvel, the events of Secret Wars II opened up an “All New-All Different” Marvel Universe which saw the collapse of the multiverse (similar to DC’s Crisis on Infinite Earths) and “new” faces taking over for many beloved iconic characters. DC likewise followed up their New 52 line up with Rebirth! A way to slightly rework some of the areas that were lacking in their New 52 line up and get characters “back to basics”. Now with both companies seemingly back on track, what does 2017 have in store for them? Also what the heck is going on over with all those other indie comic book companies? Read on to see some of the big happenings coming in 2017!
